In giving ‘concession’ to actor Vijay, the leading web-pirates Tamilrockers.com have announced that they won’t release actor Vijay’s upcoming Deepavali release Mersal simultaneously on the Web.
Directed by Atlee Kumar and starring Vijay, Samantha, Nithya Menen and the ever-curvaceous Kajal Aggarwal in the lead, Mersal is slated to hit the screen the day-after-tomorrow on Deepavali provided the Animal Welfare Board of India (AWBI) issues a necessary ‘No Objection Certificate’ for the use of animals in the film to testify that animals were not harmed during the film’s shoot.
Tamilrockers.com, who had been releasing many Tamil films simultaneously on the Web to coincide with their actual release in theatres, had earlier stated that they would accord the same ‘courtesy’ to the Vijay-starrer too. However, after undergoing a change of heart, they have now said that they would release the film on the Web only three days after its actual release in theatres.
Thanks for the courtesy!
